The residents logo is from 'fingerprince' era (1997).
The imagery looks like fingerprince eyeballs combined with the newpaper costumes from one of the videos off 'the commercial album" or maybe third reich and roll. I no longer have a laser disc player so I dunno.
this is the result of my new deal with (West Coast) Performer Magazine. They are promoting one show a month and I design a full page ad and do a poster.
Design was inspired by Chantry and the color theory was deeply influenced by Lonny Unitus's Pony's poster ( http://www.gigposters.com/posters.php?poster=26079 ) which he was kind enough to trade me for at SXSW.
